… A True Loss [#death][#Roy Innis]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,January 21st,2017

.. On January 9th , the civil rights movement lost a true icon with the death of Roy Innis . Innis worked tirelessly for years for the cause of civil rights , and worked to make it much more inclusive . So it is sad that Roy Innis has passed away ..

.. Innis made civil rights his life ‘ s work . His most important symbol were his years at C.O.R.E. . C.O.R.E. , or fully known as the Congress of Racial Equality , was a departisaned version of the N.A.A.L.C.P. . Innis lead C.O.R.E. for nearly 50 years , and his work was tireless in the cause of civil rights ..

… Why I.S.I.L. is winning [#intelligence]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 20th,2017

.. smart strategy , planning , adaption , and exploiting our weaknesses ..

.. especially our fear of civilian casualties . ISIL could not give a damn about their civilians , except how those people can serve ISIL [and Allah] . We fear civilian casualties . Our leadership does not understand that this is war , and in war , civilians die , no matter what you do …

.. so , you get off of your butt and fight the damn war , instead of ” playing tiddlywinks … ”

.. [h/t — NYPost.com]..
.. [link] to the news column ..

.. also , ISIL is adaptable . We are not , at least not enough . Col. Peters knows well what he sees and talks about . He is an experience intel op , war planner , and war fighter . He would rather tell it like it is instead of worry about climbing the ranks [and kissing ass in the process] ..

… You Wonder Why ?? [#Miz Hillary][#election loss]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 20th,2017

.. you can probably pin it on workers and illegals ..

.. the OCs and Miz Hillary cared less for workers than they did for illegals ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post // video clip ..

.. the maestro , Bill O ‘ Reilly put it better…

Trump must foster an environment where good paying jobs are created in America and “stop the chaotic enforcement of immigration law which by extension protects us from terrorism,” he continued.

“Now, it’s quite clear . . . that the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton put the needs of immigrants, some of them here illegally, above the needs of working folks,” he said.

Obama has encouraged illegal alien amnesty for certain groups, sanctuary cities, and a “colossal welfare state,” he said. “Meanwhile, the folks out in Indiana and other places are being laid off because corporations want to make a few extra bucks by moving to Mexico or another foreign country.”

… Potential Policy Changes — US Embassy in Israel …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 20th,2017

.. right now , the US Embassy in Israel is in Tel Aviv . Many people want it moved to Jerusalem ..

.. so do I . It would formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel . At last ..

.. however , such a move will not be made without opposition . The foreign policy establishment , for example , does not want [yet] want Jerusalem recognized as Israel ‘ s capital ..

… I support Kate ‘ s Law [#Bill O ‘ Reilly][#the O ‘ Reilly Factor][#Talking Points Memo]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 20th,2017

.. I fully and completely support Bill ‘ s proposal ..

.. Bill has proposed Kate ‘ s Law , a bill to deal with criminal illegal aliens . What this bill would do is mandate a 5 – year prison term for any illegal alien who is deported , and then crosses illegally back into the United States ..

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. I would change it , somewhat . I would make it start at 10 years . Also , for every documented repetition of illegal border crossing [by a criminal illegal alien] , then add another 10 years . Even better yet , make it in solitary confinement ..

.. that should send a message to those folks , especially the criminal [felon] illegal aliens . The message is that we mean business ..

… Puerto Rico needs a Financial Restructuring [#Chapter 9]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 18th,2017

.. or , the rough equivalent of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization ..

.. yes , the public sector bondholders are going to take a serious ” haircut . ” But doing so will also teach them an important lesson . The US Government ‘ s Treasury is not a bottomless pit , where states and other entities can go for a bailout when the need suits them …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. that way , once Puerto Rico emerges from its restructuring , it will have to pay a much higher price for its financial folly . In that way , it will do so just like any business that goes through a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization plan . public entities are different , though ..

.. you cannot breakup a state , county , or local government . You have to live with what is there . The near – term financial future for that reorganized entity will be tough . But it will have learned a very hard set of lessons ..

… Why China is a Problem [#legitimacy]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 18th,2017

.. it is still that simple — China is a totalitarian nation , one that is run by the Communist Party . It is a central fact that cannot be ignored ..

.. anyone who does business of any kind in the P.R.C. has to understand that . There is no effective ” rule of law ” in China . To protect one ‘ s rights , one has to negotiate contracts very , very carefully . To wit , you have to make sure that your rights are protected by a third party [arbitration] , or by the courts of athird party nation , such as the U.S. , Britain , OR Australia , for example ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com/Finance]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. so , what do you do ? Move very carefully is one way to handle it . Another is to not do business in the P.R.C. at all . The latter is the course that I would choose ..

.. if POTUS thinks that PM Bibi is going to back down in a confrontation like this , forget it . He is invested in this , politically as well as militarily . He needs to force Hamas to back down . While doing it , he needs to degrade Hamams ‘ ability to wage war severely ..

.. The North Koreans and Ian have pretty much mastered the ability to launch an I.C.B.M. [an intercontinental ballistic missile] Pakistan has , remember , mastered the ability to launch nuclear missiles [although at a medium to short range] .

— [update] — Dr. Ben Carson did indeed run for POTUS . But ,  unfortunately , his campaign has not proven out to be as  well run and as dynamic as he wanted or he  desired …

.. Carson does indeed have a future on the national stage . In what manner or fashion will largely be up to him . He would make an excellent VP pick or possibly even a cabinet secretary . I am not sure , though that he may want that . He will take stock of his first foray into presidential politics , evaluate what went right , what did not , and make the necessary changes …. Ben Carson is no one ‘ s fool .  he will learn , and learn quickly ..
